I honestly don’t know how they do it, but our models are always in a good mood. Despite the jet lag and the waiting for their fittings, hair and make-up, they are always in for a joke and open for a chat. A few of the girls and boys are close friends with the designers and stylist Tom and so spending time together in the backstage area feels like a family reunion. Normally everyone’s got a great story to share. HUGO campaign model Karmen Pedaru got married on Tom’s birthday, December 14, and showed off her gorgeous wedding band. I found out that Hanne Gaby Odiele and Kasia Struss were roommates at the beginning of their career and I had a very intense discussion with Dajana Antic about teeth bleaching. Oh, and Nadja Bender just got her first tattoo. Like I said – family reunion.
